About a week and a half ago Josiah developed a bad rash on his face, neck, back and upper arms. I did some research and I read that its common for newbies to develop this type of rash because of the hormone change in their bodies, called baby acne. It was supposed to go away in a couple of weeks on its own. But as the days went by I noticed it got worse and it was even hot to the touch. He was really fussy at the time and I even noticed him kinda trying to scratch his face. It looked more like eczema at this point. So I hunted for something to give my poor little guy some relief. I came across this cream at Target and let me tell you it was awesome! He slept so good that night and the redness went away within the hour, along with the hotness.
I wanted to recommend this Shea Moisture Baby Eczema Therapy because I know I'm not the only one who has babies with rashes and feel the need to make it all better, as a mother should! Haha. A few days later the Dr told me it was in fact eczema. A mothers intuition is always right! Well I have been applying the cream to all affected areas of his skin 2x a day and it really has improved. Oh and by the way it smells AMAZING! I rub it in my hands when I am done applying it to him because I absolutely love the smell!
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Luis returns to work Monday so I will definitely be taking advantage of the last few days with him home. I'm so sad he will be returning to work the day before my birthday, but we will be celebrating this weekend instead! WooHoo!!
